So are you saying my grandma is incorrect? OK, then. When I say "revisionist historian", I usually mean people who claim "My Mother, The Car" was more popular than "I Love Lucy". You know, NUTS!

I'm not saying your grandmother is wrong.

There were some areas in the 20s and 30s that undoubtedly look like the suburbs with detached houses and everything. The concept of a "suburb", with a dedicated subdivided housing area, with fully detached houses, quarter acre blocks and neatly trimed lawns didn't exist till the late 40s and they didn't really have a name to it until the 50s. In the 30s etc the outer urban neighbourhoods were not thought of as suburban. You either lived in the city or the country. Outer urban neighbourhoods were "city" and the local rural townships were "country".

I see. And what do you think of people who "John Ritter's Three's Company" aired in the 1950's? Because I have met such people.

I think that they wouldn't win a game of "Pin The Badly Americanised Remake Of The Delightful British Sitcom, 'Man About the House', On The Timeline."

I watched some of "Man of the House" on you tube and it is
refreshingly better.

Worse yet, I've met people who think "Small Wonder" aired in the 1970's. Gee, it's bad enough they made the show, now people can't even get the decade it was made in right.
